1 st May 2014: Swedish super-devs Zoink! Games and Indie Publisher Ripstone have announced today that Stick It To The Man! is out now on Wii U! After firmly sticking itself to PlayStation®3, PlayStation® Vita and PlayStation®4 stores; Ray and his bonkers giant pink spaghetti arm will finally be swinging onto the Wii U eShop today!

Stick it to the Man! Wii U priced at £6.99 / €7.99 / $9.99 follows the hilarious adventure of Hardhat Tester Ray Doewood, who lives in a word made of paper and stickers. After a bizarre accident at work one day; Ray wakes up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain – giving him extraordinary mind-reading powers! Suddenly, Ray can hear people’s inner most thoughts and transform the paper world around him by tearing it, folding it and using the crazy stickers he finds to solve brain-twisting puzzles! Digging in the brains of his fellow citizens – including Santa Claus, Captain Ahab and Elvis (to name but a few!); it’s up to Ray to gather clues from countless deranged characters all while trying to get to grips with his awesome new abilities and evading the evil clutches of ‘The Man’! Can you help to get Ray out of this sticky situation?

Those stupendous Swedes have been working day and night to give Nintendo fans a brand-spanking, rib-tickling new way to play the game. Have you ever wanted to know what someone was thinking? Do you live for fun and belly laughs? Well, now you can tap in and listen to the ridiculous thoughts of Flathood’s insane citizens, using your Wii U GamePad! You can check out those lovely Zoinkers demonstrating this awesome new feature in the Wii U Teaser Trailer!
